Candidate Paul Apraku Twum Barimah, Member of Parliament for the Eastern Parliament of Dormaa, described the progress made by President Akoufo Addo and the government of the nuclear power plant in generating renewable energy as excellent and unprecedented in the history of electricity generation in Ghana.
He paid tribute to the excellent role played by President Akoufo Addo in charging Jubilee House, the seat of government, with solar energy.
According to him, the entire Jubilee House – the government house – is powered by solar energy, an initiative that convincingly demonstrates the commitment and determination of the Akufo Addo government to promote renewable energy.
In an exclusive interview with the New Crusading Guide, Mr. Tvum Barimah said the 912 kilowatt solar panel installed under the presidency for $1,494,350 to provide clean energy was a great initiative.
According to him, this is already helping to reduce electricity dependence on the national grid by at least 60 per cent, as President Akoufo-Addo promised last year when he delivered the message to Parliament.
This important initiative is part of the government’s programme to include renewable energy in Ghana’s energy mix. This government believes in the importance of renewable energy sources.
Tvum Barimah also thanked the Director General of the Bui Power Authority, Mr. Fred Oware, for the successful strategic initiative in the field of renewable energy.
He said the buoyant energy department will complete the construction of a $480 million solar power system by the end of December 2020. The solar power plant is expected to increase the current production capacity of the 400-megawatt dam by 250 megawatts.
He also praised Ghana for taking some initiatives to set up sustainable energy facilities in Ghana. He thinks this should be the case, especially when everyone is talking about climate change.
I know that ENI has made an agreement with the Bui Power Authority in Ghana and the Northern Development Authority to try to build several solar parks in Ghana.
According to Tuvum Barim, the development of the solar energy project is part of the National Government’s (NDC) contribution to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCO).
From the point of view of the development of renewable energy sources, solar energy, wind energy and even the supply of natural gas to our power plants, the government of the Akufo Addo nuclear power plant has done a very good job.
Since the president will lead this great country for another four years, I hope he will do more to increase the production of electricity from renewable energy sources.
The development of solar energy projects is part of the Government’s Identified National Contribution (NEC) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which seeks to introduce innovative and sustainable renewable energy technologies to meet its obligations under the Convention.
